'Kenny Walk' Port Macquarie

Cost: $300,000

Contractor: Coastal Works

Client: Port Macquarie Hastings Council

Client Referee: Tim Veness

Coastal Works was contracted by Port Macquarie Hastings Council to upgrade a part of the Ocean Walk in Port Macquarie. The upgraded location is from Nobby’s beach to North Shelley Beach, commonly known as ‘Kenny Walk’.

The work was required to upgrade the safety of the public by constructing a boardwalk, renewing handrails and the asphalt surface, repairing land erosion and installing new seats.

Nobby’s Beach is a very popular area as it is the only off leash dog beach in the area. One of the contract requirements was to maintain access to the beach during construction. The local residents were very supportive of the works and could see that for very little disruption there was a lot to gain.
